Vice-Governor of Primorye Pavel Serebryakov held a meeting on the development of air ambulance in the region, the press service of the regional administration said.

The meeting, which was attended by representatives of the departments of health, industry and transport, as well as specialists from the Center for Disaster Medicine, Primorsky Krai, explored the issues of operation of the purchased medical helicopters, their bases, as well as issues of operational response of the services involved.

Pavel Serebryakov stressed that aviation medicine should become a strategic direction for the development of emergency medical care in the region. “The helicopters that will arrive in the region should be maximally used for the benefit and to save the life and health of Primorye residents,” he said.

Currently, the readiness for departure of a helicopter, rented by specialists of the center of medicine, ranges from 3 to 5 hours. The Vice-Governor instructed the specialists of the departments of health and industry and transport to calculate all options for the temporary readiness of the aircraft and the medical team for departure.

“The delivery of the helicopter should be as efficient as possible. It is necessary to start developing this important area right now, because sometimes the count goes literally for minutes to save lives, the use of helicopters for transporting the wounded is simply irreplaceable, ”stressed Pavel Serebryakov.

In Primorye, the procedure for requesting proposals for the right to conclude a contract for the supply of two helicopters for air ambulance has been completed. The winner was the Ural helicopter company Uralhelicom. During 79 days, she must deliver Bell 2 helicopters in Primorye, which will be involved in aeromedicine.

Acquisition of ambulance helicopters is included in the programs for the modernization of regional health care. It is estimated that one such aircraft saves 200 lives annually.

According to the first vice-governor of Primorye Vasily Usoltsev, the ambulance helicopters will have two basing points: Kavalerovo will close the northern part of the region, and Vladivostok - the southern one. With the help of sanitary aviation, people will be able to quickly deliver to one of 11 specialized medical centers located in various municipalities.
